The crossover continues as Tom and Davin work on our 1930's race car | Redline Update


Our Redline Rebuild and Barn Find Hunter crossover is moving forward. This week Davin and Tom set to work cleaning up the parts we removed from Snowball’s 1937 Ford coupe. Tom got to know the blast cabinet quite well while Davin worked on breaking down some stubborn part assemblies. Though not the most glamourous of projects cleaning is none-the-less important, and it keeps our project rolling forward.

REDLINE REBUILDS: We spend hundreds of hours tearing apart old engines, machining and obsessively cleaning the parts, and reassembling it all. We exhaustively chronicle every step along the way with thousands of photos, then boil it down to a fast-paced but incredibly detailed time-lapse video. Share the satisfaction of the finish and the first fire-up!

BARN FIND HUNTER: Tom Cotter literally wrote the book(s) on barn finds, starting with The Cobra in the Barn. Tom travels North America in his 1939 Ford Woodie Wagon, searching for forgotten classics in barns, backyards, dusty garages, and scrapyards and meets the fascinating characters who open the barn doors for him and tell him their stories.

WHY I DRIVE: Deep dive profiles of owners of interesting cars. Owners narrate, sharing their particular passion, with evocative on-the-road footage. We take you to their homes and garages, showing you firsthand the turn of the key, the first high-rpm upshift, and their favorite roads and destinations, whether it’s the local racetrack, ice cream parlor, or canyon road.

    Ive watch both of your shows for a little while now and enjoy both sides of the coin. I also really like the concept of the pairing of your shows, so that this car can once again be enjoyed by the owner and now by all of us watching. Keep up the great work and great content guys.

    Really going to enjoy watching the Rebuild on this old modified. Reminds me of the cars at the local dirt tracks when I was a kid. RIP Jimmy Shampine 8-ball.

    if I remember right you can get all the steering and suspension parts from Speedys! and the desirable brakes were the Lincoln drums I think they took a wider shoe ! and make sure you change out on the 440 the rods were the weak point on them so a set of eye beam rods are best ! also the only reason someone used a Chevy frame was because that's all they could find! so think about that? a frame is cheap at this point!

    I prefer using crushed walnut shells on aluminum. It leaves a beautiful finish.

    As Smokey Yunick once said " An engine doesn't know whose name is on the outside" ??

    Those axle housings/side bells are Ford 3/4 ton (F2) parts as are the full floating axles and brakes. It takes two Ford axles to make one quickchange axle. Inside you will find a bearing spacer on one side. Ingenious.

    When cleaning Alloy parts i use a Wet blaster. the surface doesn't get pitted like it does with a dry blast. it also puts a protective peened skin on the parts which gets a sheen and is easy to clean with a rag.
